Dewbridge at Denver.
The investment is part of the airline's plan to move all 35 flights operated at Denver by its budget arm Ted from Concourse A to five gates within Concourse B. The first of the boarding bridges will be operational in April and the airline is expecting it will result in ten-minute reductions in turnaround times.
"We're pleased to become the first US airline to utilize this innovative equipment," said Sean Donohue VP Operational Services, United Express and Ted. "By introducing this boarding system it will allow passengers to deplane faster, while enabling employees more time to focus on the customer."
Essentially the airline will use the bridges' introduction as a template for its operation at Denver which if successful will roll out at other US airports across Ted's network.
